Offa Poly suspends 2 suspected cult members

Management of the Federal Polytechnic, Offa has suspended two students of the institution, Tajudeen Selim and Temitope Omotosho, suspected to be cult members, a statement by the institution yesterday said.
According to the statement, before the suspended students were paraded by the police, the institution reported the incidence of forceful initiation to security agencies when the student who was forcefully initiated lodged a complaint to the institution.
Consequently, the police quick response ensured the arrest of the suspects.
For now, the two suspected students are suspended indefinitely pending the outcome of the police investigation and further findings on the matter.
The management of the institution also said that Adewusi Vincent who was mentioned along with the two suspects has ceased to be a student of the institution, having been withdrawn from the Polytechnic since 2017 for poor performance.
The statement read in part:“The Management wishes to state unequivocally that cases of cultism has been a thing of the past in the institution as the new management under Dr.
Lateef Ademola Olatunji has purged the institution of all forms of cultism, gangsterism and other anti social vices since he came on board as Rector in 2017.
“The Management has been dealing decisively with any student suspected to be involved in cultism or any criminal acts.
Other offences such as examination malpractices, sexual harassment are also gross misconduct at the Polytechnic which attract outright expulsion from the institution.
Students found culpable are equally handed over to the law enforcement agents for prosecution.
“The Management, through the Directorate of Students’ Affairs has put a lot of measures in place to checkmate cultism with the introduction of the use of security form for newly admitted students; regular sensitization of students where they are admonished to steer clear of cultism, hooliganism and other forms of social menace.
And that they should be of good conduct everywhere they are in order to ensuring peaceful co-existence within and outside the polytechnic campuses and maintaining harmonious relationship with other colleagues and the host communities.
“Since then, the Students Union Executives and other students have been well behaved and have not been found wanting both in character and learning.”
